The Man Who Killed the Cure, a controversial new play by The Last Lifeboat playwright Luke Yankee, is based on the life and death of Dr. Max Gerson, one of the fathers of natural healing. Two doctors, who are colleagues, friends, and men of science, survive Nazi Germany and make their way to America. Dr. Max Gerson believes in natural healing techniques while his former best friend and new adversary gets rich trying to stop him. This play is about the times we live in, one man’s betrayal of another, and a timeless investigation of the hypocrisy that poisons the world of modern medicine.
